  • Sumida river, in the area near Sumida park, is a nice place to have a walk. Several green areas where you can stop and take a nap! ;-)  more »
  • Even without a boat tour or long stay at the park, the Sumida River offers lovely views. What a nice place to wind down after the shopping and temples of Asakusa.  more »
  • Lovely walk along the river during Sakura season. Lots of people brought along mats to picnic on. There were also lots of food and beer trucks dotted along the river.  more »

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
